Just, you know, a suggestion

I think the moderators are doing great and all, but I just have a little suggestion. There are not that many active members on this forum. By active, I mean that post regularly. There is a fair amount, but there are a ton of lurkers. In the spirit of expanding the pool of people posting, I might suggest we not be so harsh with people. When you've only posted a few things and countless people, including moderators, make fun of/ insult / alienate you, it can be hard to get up the courage to post again. I'm not saying you all are mean or anything, just some people aren't as kind as they could be because of petty little things. Also, I think it is the moderators job to make sure that everyone is having a fun and enjoyable time on the site. --- And this is just something I think we should keep in mind. I'm not implying this happened to me or anything, but I have noticed some things that could come off that way. Also, I know that 90% of the lurkers don't have anything good to say anyhow. ~Peace

I must say that I mostly agree with you. Basically we only have only a dozen or so people who post things regularly, but how do you change it?

I posted a topic and it turned out that pretty much every one flamed me for my spelling and grammer.
It hurt. i mean they were comparing me to 734+ speak.

You can talk about anything 'round these parts mate

Do you have an interest? Speak about it.

A little light-hearted ribbing I'm sure

If you're worried about it, you can check your spelling using google desktop, as one suggestion.

People here seem to take online activity as if it were in real life, and get offended too easily. We are hostile to certain new members because its obvious they're here for the pictures when they post about 15 times within 10 minutes, and are never to be seen again.. its quite obvious they're just using the forum to masturbate to the pictures or otherwise.

I personally haven't insulted anyone on here myself for quite a while I would say. We have had certain members who have been super-sensitive and have hated myself and our other moderator, big_fat_kiddo for no apparent reason though, and its better off that these people who appear to hold grudges for no apparent reason not be here, as they only cause trouble in the end.

However Koalachan, I am very pleased that you were the first person to post some constructive criticism for a long while. When us mods get heaps of shit from various different members and don't really get a explanation why, its extremely frustrating. They participate on the forum, they should know the rules, people here also need to learn as I say above that this isn't the real world. Its a forum, we don't know each other personally so there is no point to take everything said on here like its a personal insult to you. A community doesn't work when nobody or nothing is criticized but instead is only talked about behind others backs. Moderators have thick skins for the exact reason that we don't expect people to like us. This is probably the prime reason why I laugh whenever I hear people want to be moderator. Unless you are willing to accept responsibility that comes with a lot of the community disliking you for no reason apart from the fact that you have higher authority then you on a forum, then don't even think about it

Yea, ev1lm0ng00se's post was one that I was concerned about. His speech was easily understood by anyone with half a brain, but people were really upset that he didn't form complete sentences. I understand other posters saying stuff about it, but having a moderator be harsh with you is kinda scary, and I don't think it could even be considered internet speak. Maybe a little, but that post was pretty clean and easy to read. I dunno... You can find that thread and read my entirely inappropriate response! Wish I had thought to edit it, it came off really mean.
